Depending on where you are on your Data Viz journey, I'd probably start with Dona Wong or Cole Knaflic, then Andy Kirk, then Kopenen & Hildén (once I've read K&H I might swap the last two around)

Cairo's books are nice interlude and Few's is quite heavy weight (in both senses) though useful for dashboard design

(Amazon links are associate ones so feel free to buy elsewhere e.g. Hive in the UK)
